Although corn is now a pop icon, it built its fan base through standing gigs in breakfast cereals and furtive poems published under the pseudonym C. Cob. Enjoy this lyrical snack with today's Groupon: for $14, you get two 10-ounce bags and six 2-ounce bags of gourmet kettle popcorn at Hawaiian Popcorn (a $32 value). Customers must call ahead to schedule a pickup time.
Hawaiian Popcorn has been using kettles to harness the explosive power of corn since 1996. Crafted daily from a secret family recipe and all-natural ingredients, the airy snack treats tongues to three of the five basic tastes: sweet, salty, and popped. With a bundle of two 10-ounce ($7 each) and six 2-ounce bags ($3 each), nibblers can share snacks at parties or enjoy kettle-forged perfection on the go. Hawaiian Popcorn uses absolutely no artificial dyes or colors, popping each kernel over a kettle, without ever resorting to using microwaves, air-popping techniques, or sun-scorched sidewalks.
